New video:
The video shows and explains the undercrossing of Norderney for the Borwin4 and Dolwin4 power lines. The Gerodur cable conduits used for this are first transported to the island of Norderney, welded and then shipped around the island. Once landed there, they will later be pulled into the corresponding bore channels. Employees of the companies Amprion and Ludwig Freytag Tiefbau explain the construction project in an interview.

System components

  • LHT® Electrofusion fitting

    for a material-locking and high-temperature resistant connection of protective pipes. The installation of protective pipe strings with bending radii is fully possible.
  • EMDS push-fit coupler

    for a high-temperature resistant push-in connection of protective conduits. The installation of protective pipe strings with bending radii is possible to a limited extent. Suitable for long-term temperature operation.
  • EMDS pipe bends

    for changing the direction of power lines. Particularly large bending radii for friction reduction when pulling in cables. Suitable for long-term temperature operation.
  • EMDS end caps

    for welding to protective pipe ends for a permanent or temporary material-locking closure of protective pipes. Suitable for long-term temperature operation.
  • Weldable pulling head

    made of PE100 with tightly welded pull-eye. Graduated design of wall thicknesses for multiple use of different SDR classes.
  • Weld-on adapter

    for creating an wall-integrated welding bead between 2 pipe strings without removing the last welding bead made of PE-RT (raised temperature). Suitable for long-term temperature operation.
  • Centric reduction

    for wall thickness compensation of different SDR classes, made of PE-RT (raised temperature), according to DIN 8074/­8074, ISO 24033. Suitable for long-term temperature operation.
  • Centric reduction

    for wall thickness compensation of different SDR classes and outside diameters, made of PE-RT (raised temperature), according to DIN 8074/­8074, ISO 24033. Suitable for long-term temperature operation.
  • EPS Spacer

    with project-specific centre distance for protective pipes according to DIN EN 13163. For exact positioning of EMDS protective pipes in open trenches. Can be individually modified according to customer specifications.
  • Anti-lift device

    Concrete component with customised ground anchor set for securing against pipe uplift with defined centre-to-centre spacing for exact positioning of EMDS protection pipes
  • Cable cover foil

    for safe protection against external influences, extremely stretchable and tear-resistant, according to DIN 54841-5.
  • Route warning tape

    PE composite film according to FTZ 548464 TV1, resistant to ageing and cold, colourfast, permanently legible, with clear film coating over the print.


Peeler Set

The power pack for protective jacket pipes according to PAS 1075 type 3. For quick and easy removal of the protective jacket.

Suitable installation

  • Sand bedding

    When laying in a sand bed, the excavated material must be replaced with a sand bedding in accordance with DIN EN 805. Restrictions on the grain sizes of the bedding material must be observed.
  • Without sand bedding

    Due to the verification by an independent testing institute, the installation is possible without a sand bed. This eliminates the additional expense of replacing the excavation with a sand bedding in accordance with DIN EN 805 (transport, landfill).
  • Ploughing

    In the ploughing method, the soil is displaced by a plough blade and the pipeline is placed on the bottom of the soil.
  • Milling

    In the milling process, a pipe trench is cut into the subsoil by machine and the pipeline is laid on the bottom of the trench.
  • Pipe bursting

    Static pipe bursting is the renewal of the old pipeline along the same of the old pipe route, which is shattered by the bursting head and the remaining fragments are pressed into the surrounding soil.
  • Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

    The new installation by HDD is usually carried out in three successive work steps. With the continuous pilot borehole, which is controlled by positioning the route is determined. This is followed by the widening of the borehole and the pulling in of the pipe string.
  • Relining

    In the case of relining with annular space, the new pipe string with a smaller cross-section is pulled into the cleaned old pipeline using a pull-in device.
  • Soil Displacement Method

    In the soil displacement method, a pneumatically operated displacement hammer, a so-called "rocket", is used to excavate an underground cavity. The new pipeline is then pulled into it.
We will be happy to advise you individually on other installation methods specially designed for underground laying.
